More playing with hot press. This time, 9x12

Comments welcome. This probably isn't finished either.

Very nice colour! That red flower is beautiful! It does, however, seem to be floating... Could you extend your stem down below that bottom leaf? Take a look at the values in your green plant... IMHO, you need some variation and more darks...

hot press is way different huh. i really like what you did with the flower. exquisit. the background is a little muddy and your leaves don't really stand out (too bad). have no advice on hot press, only used it once.

Lovely flower!

I suggest you continue with the dark background after you put in that missing stem. You may also consider a crop, the right hand leaf looks out of place.

Nice flower

Are you allowing your washes of color to dry completely before putting the next layer on? IMO, you are getting the beginnings of mud in your background. You could pull some of that color out, then after it is completely dry, start putting in washes again, allowing each layer to dry completely.

Agree w/Yorky about the crop.
